If you are against gay marriage, you are a bad Christian. v2 377 Morality and Religion 3/22/14 4:19pm

Skepticism doesn't help much as a response to visceral conviction. Fifty times I might ask someone fanatically Christian what damage they will do to society and the people around them if they are wrong, and fifty times expect them to tell me that they are not wrong. There are plenty of reasons why Christian doctrine shouldn't have anything to do with secular law in the first place, some of wh ...

Let me stop you right there. That passage you're alluding to refers to an unspecified instance of divine retribution, and one of the most entertaining ways I've heard to torment straight people if you don't like them very much. And you would be wrong. What is "natural" is both impossible to pin down and a double-edge fallacious blade. It's also not in keeping with Yeshua's teachings, which ...

Thanks. Someone suggested that it needed to be done here. (Via reply, naturally.) I may just ignore that achievement.

I'm torn between thanking you for the suggestion and bitching about you having said that in a reply.

This is not a test thread. Seriously, please don't reply to this one. There is nothing to see here. :ninja:

Both. First, I certainly do not define a side by the flatness of its face. I was speaking geometrically - as coins are three-dimensional objects - and in consideration of the obvious edge case when flipping a coin. Second, I was actually using the coin metaphor to allude to the OP's false dilemma, since there can of course be many other possibilities. I have no interest in discussing coins ...

You do know that coins have more than two sides, right?

I generally agree. I think that Paul is doing the best he can here, and I am aware that it is a sensible course. I just find it relevant that his response is distinct from Yeshua's unless a very specific set of circumstances existed at the time, which suggests that he is handling matters in an incorrect but understandable manner. My source says it is gender inclusive. While I do not agree wi ...

Then find a place that isn't also a debate forum. Don't look now, but to disagree civilly is also to have an argument. No, there isn't. There are, however, differences between attempting to legislate against it or persuade people they they shouldn't do it and merely disliking it. That doesn't mean it isn't offensive or oppressive to individuals. That is a red herring. Identity ha ...

Again, not a contradiction. The Magna Carta is not valid law in the United States, yet points in U.S. law that are also addressed in the Magna Carta should correspond. This isn't a particularly hard concept. Leviticus is moot, but it derives from the same root as the NT (and the NT contains much discussion of older texts). If the two had nothing in common, Leviticus would have no relevance wh ...
